Abstract: We use two constructs to examine mentoring in this practicum. Epistemic frames-- the configurations of the skills, knowledge, identities, values, and epistemologies that professionals use to think in innovative ways--provide a model for looking at professional expertise (Shaffer, 2006). Building on epistemic frames is epistemic network analysis (Shaffer, et al., 2009), a method for quantifying changes in epistemic frames (Shaffer, 2010). Our claim here is that the mentor, using Schn's "Follow me!" coaching model (1987), leads the team on a path that illuminates the nature of learning to think professionally and on the function of a mentor in that process.
